Places to Avoid While Armed

Certain businesses in Michigan have either posted no-guns ‘signs’ or have indicated in their ‘business policy’ that persons lawfully licensed to carry concealed firearms for self defense are not welcome on their property or within their place of business.

This policy of denying Michigan’s most upstanding and law abiding men and women the right to resist criminal attack while shopping or doing business does not create a safe environment, as only law-abiding citizens will obey their signs. “No-Guns” signs simply mean that criminals have a lot less to worry about and may even be emboldened to commit armed criminal acts in these so-called “gun free environments”.

Although most businesses in Michigan have chosen not to post discriminatory signs against concealed pistol license holders, some have. Even though these businesses have the right to post no firearms allowed signs, it does NOT mean that they are “gun free environments” as criminals intent on robbery, or worse, will continue to be armed.View List

Executive Director’s Message

The 101st Michigan legislative session began on Wednesday, January 13, 2021. Like the previous legislative session, Michigan has a pro-gun majority legislature and an anti-gun governor. The likelihood of any substantial firearms legislation passing these next two years is minimal. However, this session serves as an idea incubator for self-defense advocates planning for a new governor in 2023 and their gun control antagonists hoping for a change in direction as a result of redistricting.Read More
